There are certain subjects on my blog that don’t inspire big numbers.
(You know what they are.)
But I yap about them anyway. If I can open even one mind — change even one point of view — well, that is a post well-spent.
And today, I feel I must spend just a little more time on one of my favorite topics — and not necessarily yours — “Dancing with the Stars.”
If you saw it last night — and let’s face it, you probably didn’t — Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysacek and his professional partner Anna Trebunskaya danced the Argentine tango…and scored a 30. It’s a perfect score on DWTS and the first of the season from the judges for an amazing, deserving performance.
Now, from day one, people have said that an Olympic figure skater like Evan probably has an edge (pardon the pun, love that pun) in an dancing competition. And I agree.
But I still loved this dance. Not just because it’s incredible…but because Evan is a male figure skater. And that particular breed of athlete is a big ol’ bag of stereotypes.
And this dance…blew them all out of the water.
Take a look. See what you think.
